    Memory And Mercy At The Table Of The Lord

    Memory And Mercy At The Table Of The Lord

    How do we remember well? How do we recall the pain of history without reinforcing its trauma or repeating its mistakes? How do we memorialize without sanitizing? In the wake of monuments tumbling-- in some cases as an act of repentance or justice, and in other instances as a result of an angry or ignorant mob-- the question we are grappling with is one of memory and mercy. How do we remember a failure through the prism of mercy? Can remembrance meet repentance?

    How To Debate

    How To Debate

    Most often, when we debate the Bible, we make secondary things primary. When we love our opinions, perspectives, or judgments at the expense of loving people, we are at risk for not loving people at all. C. S. Lewis put it like this, “Put first things first and we get second things thrown in: put second things first and we lose both first and second things. . . . You can’t get second things by putting them first; you can only get second things by putting first things first.”

    Compassion & Conviction

    Compassion & Conviction

    No one makes political decisions from a neutral position. To make a policy decision is to choose certain values and goods over others. Political decisions are inevitably informed by a certain worldview or outlook. When Christians aren’t applying biblical principles to their political opinions, their point of view is guided by other belief systems.

    Wherever, Whatever

    Wherever, Whatever

    When I first gave my life to Jesus, I remember saying to him, “Wherever you want me, whatever you want, however and whenever you want it—I am all yours.” Honestly, I think that kind of response is just what love, in fact, does. If you’ve ever fallen in love, you know what I’m talking about. Love gives itself, and it gives itself completely. That’s what marriage is: I am yours, and you are mine. And when the love of Jesus touches us, when his call comes to us, it awakens a similar response—I am all yours!

    Leading: What’s a Leader to Do?

    Let’s just put it out there: the word evangelism is usually a turnoff—and not only to non-Christians. I’ve taught classes on evangelism...
